Bowie Hydro-Mulchers® and Aero-Mulchers

Bowie Crimp Disc

Bowie’s Crimp Disc is not like the lightweight crimpers. Crimp Discs made by Bowie are “Built-Strong...Built to Last” and are used to anchor straw and hay mulch into the soil. The vertical fibers, in rows six inches apart, form a fence that will protect the other mulch fibers from wind. Each vertical standing straw is available to carry moisture into the soil to aid in seed germination. This method is a fraction of the cost of other methods. In high wind areas, this method has proven to be the most effective.

Aero-Mulchers®, commonly known as Straw Blowers, or Hay Blowers, mechanically shorten and quickly distribute baled hay and straw fibers via a high-speed airstream. The resulting blanket of fibers is often glued together with a sprayed-on tackifier on steep slopes, while rolling and flatter terrain can utilize the quicker and more effective tractor-drawn Bowie Crimp Disc. Blown and crimped (or tacked) hay and straw is a highly effective, low-cost BMP for controlling erosion and sedimentation by quickly establishing vegetation.
